Mata-Au Pinot Noir 2019
The bouquet is detailed and perfumed featuring fresh cherry fruit, wild flowers, black tea and Asian spice. The generous berry fruits are coated with layers of fine silky tannin creating an elegantly structured mid palate; while more complex floral and spice notes evolve on a powerful and sustained finish.
Our Mata-Au vineyards are located in the Lowburn and Parkburn areas of the Cromwell basin. The vineyards are planted on the terraces and alluvial schist based soils formed by the Mata-Au (Clutha) River (pronounced – martar-o). The unique combination of site, soil and mild continental climate produces perfumed wines with elegant texture, structure and mineral length. It is made from the best blocks in our best vineyards in the Lowburn/Parkburn sub-region. Mata-Au showcases the succulent red fruits and silky tannins that are the hallmarks of this sub-region, delivered in our elegant, textural and length driven style.
